STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - A pride parade scheduled for March in Starkville has been denied by the Board of Aldermen.
In Tuesday night's meeting, the board voted four to three to deny the pride parade scheduled for March.
The parade was originally a community event that was left off of discussion for the meeting, but when one board member disapproved, it was pulled for discussion.
Many community members stood before the board to express their thoughts both for and against the pride parade.
The parade would have been the first of its kind in the city.
We are working to learn more from city officials.
